Poured a nice dark hue with little head. Malt was coming through the moment it was opened and while pouring into the glass. The aroma was all malt, I really didnt notice anything else standing out.
The first taste was big, perhaps a bit too big. The aftertaste was not nearly as big.
My second sip was much more enjoyable. Here, I tasted the barley and malt round and full, offset by a banana nose and some faint but noticeable hop/yeast bouquet.
This was a big round beer, enjoyable, not a summer beer, more for sitting around a fireplace snaking on some cheese and nuts

This pours a ruddy raisin brown color with light foam. There’s a bit of stone fruit and plums on the aroma, with an earthy estery profile. I find the flavor to be sweetish but not cloying, with some plums and figgy notes. Comes off smooth and almost velvety.
Serving type: on-tap
